concert hall

“A space with chairs, a stage/the cold eye of a glass of water". Melancholy Lost-in-Translation (2003) feeling in De Doelen concert building, walking distance from Central Station and bordering the Schouwburgplein entertainment district. On its opening in 1966 it was regarded as the Crown on the post-war reconstruction of the city. Thanks to the good acoustics in the auditoria, it has become home to the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. With about 450,000 visitors and about 1200 concerts, events, festivals (including the International Film Festival Rotterdam and the Gergiev Festival) every year, it is the second most important concert building in the Netherlands.
